    New Parks Boys school was built sometime around the early 1950's, to serve the newly built New Parks Estate and surrounding area. It was joined to the girls school, which was a mirror image of the boys school buildings. The boys and girls schools merged in 1981 to become New Parks Secondary School, which was later renamed New Parks Community College. In 1999 Leicester City Council closed a load of schools in the city, they also merged my school and another with New Parks. We were moved from our fairly decent old school to the dingy buildings of New Parks, which although they had been refurbished were still pretty horrible. A year or two before I left the old boys buildings ended up being abandoned and boarded off from the former girls school which remained in use. This year the buildings have finally started to be demolished, unfortunately they had already been mostly stripped out by the time we got there. Bit of a shame as it had been boarded up with the contents left exactly as I remember it, did manage to find a massive stash of 1950's/60's paperwork though :)
